Obfuscation

It feels as if the end is near.

Clouds choking, *cough* lungs

Friends are failing, drinking beer

Cars are stacking—bankers run

 

Heavy eyes, hiding tears

Children cry, pundits jeer

Institutions: cracked and broke

Pinch the joint — one last toke

 

Civility breeds. complacency

Disconnected souls: 🡻 Latency

Innovate; till the ship goes down

China’s cheering, as we drown 

 

Video games and phones distract

Don’t blame Lee for smoking crack;

used to get socked for talking smack.

Children lack … resilience.

 

Work until flesh falls from bone;

then, send in, Hell-fire drones.

Desensitized — drooling dope;

“Help this man tie his rope.”

 

It’s not despair, for those who care—

it’s inspiration, to fuel our nation.

Lingering hints of manipulation;

divisiveness bars contemplation
